We’ve seen plenty of artists take ordinary objects, disassemble them and turn them into something completely different. Éric Nado is a Canadian artist who turns typewriters into guns. Each Royal, Underwood, Tippa, Rheinmetall, Remington, Brother or Lettera typewriter is painstakingly broken down into its constituent parts before being rebuilt, sometimes with the addition of bullet casings for some contrast and pop, as an artistic variation on the submachine gun or assault rifle. Key levers become part of the magazine. Rollers become barrels or silencers. Typewriter bodies become stocks and receivers. Each of Nado’s creations is a piece suitable for display just about anywhere. Obviously they don’t fire real bullets, but they most certainly spark heated debates wherever you decide you want to hang them. The pieces are currently available from Galerie C.O.A.
